To Grandad from Nikki…

REMEMBER……
 
It is the soldier, not the reporter,
who has given us the freedom of the press.
 
It is the soldier, not the poet,
who has given us the freedom of speech.
 
It is the soldier, not the campus organiser,
who has given us the freedom to demonstrate.
 
It is the soldier, who salutes the flag,
and who’s coffin is draped by the flag,
who allows the protestor to burn the flag.
